SPOTLIGHT ON

Salvage

29 March 2018


One of the most popular and current interiors trends is salvage. Mixing rustic wood materials and metal elements, this easy-living look takes inspiration from the concept of reclaiming pieces of furniture and setting them against an industrial-style backdrop.


Keen-eyed design lovers and aficionados have spotted the timeless appeal that this slightly worn-in and effortless style offers. We have a collection of furniture, wallpaper and decorative accessories to help you get the look at home.

What are the key elements to look out for?

Rustic wood furniture

Choose furniture that is simple but chic. The warm wooden finish of our Bronx and Hoxton ranges works perfectly for salvage. Both look as if they have been inspired by the idea of reclamation but have the added benefit of elegant metal handles and sturdy build quality.

Work smart

Want to inspire a new way of working? The Williamsburg desk has a wood finish and a warehouse vibe thanks to the industrial trestle-leg detail. Match it up with a metal light such as the Pipe table lamp to complete the look.

Metal details

Look out for furniture and accessories that have metal details. Our Hoxton salvage chest is finished with beautiful metal borders, or if you’re looking for something smaller, try this petite but very practical Piano stool in a classic black and natural wood combination.

Industrial lighting

Pared back lighting is a key element of the salvage trend. Metal-finished shade and fixture designs have that urban edginess that, when paired up with filament bulbs, look contemporary and stylish. Try our Mesh lighting range and combine one of the striking overhead pendants with wall, floor and table lamp options.

Finishing touches

Complete the salvage look with a combination of textured and rustic accessories. Layer items such as this Salvage Abstract rug with an elegant and contemporary-shaped Salvage Wave rectangle design mirror. Stick to muted hues, hints of bare wood and exposed metal and you won't go wrong.
